Third String But Playing on Special Teams

Re: OT: Jets Clowney Benched thanks to Twitter
The problem Rexy had with the twitter post is the fact that Clowney didn't do several of the following.
Edit: Corrected after the PFT discovery. It should now properly reflect Florio's code in journalism.
A. Talk **** about an opposing team. all players.
B. Talk **** about an opposing coach. all coaches.
C. Play the disrespect card. my scoop was stolen, no one takes me seriously. /Cry card.
D. Talk some more ****.
In all seriousness though, I don't see anything the guy said as being disrespectful to the organization. Twitter is a way for players to speak to their fans (assuming Clowney has fans or supporters) he was just commenting on how disappointed he was with his playing time, which imo, is more of a comment on himself. I could be wrong. I don't know anything about the guy, but if you want to play, force the coaches to play you.
*Whoops! Maybe I should pay more attention when I read. Just noticed the speculation was from the great Florio. Being that it's from Florio, I can speculate that he was merely speculating using the A-D standard that I jokingly gave credit to the Jesters.
